Last month I shot a quick recap music video for Yelp’s 12 Day’s of Yelpiness holiday party.   Lots of cool venders and awesome food.  It felt good to leave the editing cavern for a day Glad I could help out.      Thanks to Johnny Todd and the rest of the Yelp family for having me.

Lisa & Drew

Happy New Year!  Man 2011 was a great year.   I’m wrapping up editing on the late summer weddings from 2011 so expect more posts soon!.

I shot this cinematic wedding with 3 total shooters and a plethora of cameras in Valparaiso, Indiana.  Having that extra set of eyes on the viewfinder gave me time to get some sweet creative shots.  I also was lucky enough to steal the couple for an extra day of shooting before their nuptials.  This whole project was a ton of work but I had a blast and couldn’t be prouder of the results.  Enjoy!

Stef & Mike First Look

I always encourage couples to do a First Look. The controlled spontaneity of the moment is easier to capture outside of a long church aisle.   Here’s a fun first look we shot at Cantigny in Wheaton, IL.

Special thanks to the photographers, Gina & Tony for helping orchestrate this moment.  Hand-held camera by Thane

Storage Wars

I just finished copying last night’s wedding onto my backup drives. Total size 188.3 Gigabytes. I believe my first computer had a 100 Megabyte hard drive. Yikes…

Welcome Thane

I’d like to publicly welcome Thane to the Hendzel Productions fold. Thane has been helping me extensively as my second shooter/navigator/tech guru.  I’m editing so much great footage right now and there’s a lot of exciting stuff in the works so stay tuned. For now enjoy a picture of Thane and I rocking out in our inflatable band.  Fear not, we will leave the shades at home(unless you request otherwise).
